What was the last book you read?
"I'm reading two books at the moment - My Idea of Fun by Will Self and the other's Possesision by AS Byatt."

Do you drive?
"I don't drive, but if I did I would probably get a Triumph Spitfire or Stag. It'd be nice to drive off into the country"

Do you have a favourite painter?
"My favourite painter is Magritte, but I have very poor visual sense. I don't think in terms of pictures."

Your favourite building?
"I do like the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao. There's no one building in London that really lodges in my mind, just the skyline as you come over the river."

What's your favourite TV programme?
"I'm not a fan of television. In fact, I recently read a book by White Dot, the auto-TV organisation, which I thought made good sense. I find TV has less and less to recommend it - apart from John Shuttleworth."

How many pairs of trainers do you own?
"I have two pairs - these Converse I'm wearing today and another pair. So I do have some, but I think Suede are, spiritually, a boot band."
